Bishop Gavin Ashendon, former chaplain to the Queen, is joining the Catholic Church.
This article via Church Militant makes no mention of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, so I have no idea where he will be incardinated but he will be received into the Church this coming Sunday. I will update when I find out.
What a blessing this well-known pastor of souls and communicator will make inside the Catholic Church!
The outspoken prelate became a global media celebrity after he objected to the reading of the Koran at St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow, Scotland.
The Koranic chapter on Mary, read from the lectern at the service of Holy Communion, on the Feast of the Epiphany 2017, explicitly denied the divinity of Jesus.
Under pressure from Buckingham Palace, Dr. Ashenden resigned his royal chaplaincy in order to be free to challenge the rising tide of apostasy in the Church of England.
Later that year, Ashenden was consecrated a missionary bishop to the United Kingdom and Europe by the Christian Episcopal Church to provide episcopal cover to traditionalist Anglicans leaving the Church of England.
